Sistah Vegan Sistah Vegan is not about preaching veganism or vegan fundamentalism. Rather, the book is about how a group of black-identified female vegans perceive nutrition, food, ecological sustainability, health and healing, animal rights, parenting, social justice, spirituality, hair care, race, gender-identification, womanism, and liberation that all go against the (refined and bleached) grain of our dysf...

Food for Thought 13 mars 2010
Par Sahasrara Aten RA - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I have been a vegetarian on and off for 15 years and two years ago, I became a vegan. Like a lot of black women, I became interested in vegetarianism for both health and spiritual reasons. I've read books by Queen Afua, Dr. Laila Afrika and others. As I changed my eating habits, I also became aware of the large amounts of chemicals and animal products in my personal care items and I have begun to weed them out and replace them with vegan ones. My goal is to live a life that honors our Great Mother Earth.

With all that said, I never considered the connection between human rights and animal rights until I read Sistah Vegan. The collection of essays are thought provoking and made me question my dedication to liberation for all. I am the person that recycles, doesn't litter and is looking to start an organic garden yet I had no problem going and buying a fly pair of leather shoes. I wouldn't own a pet because it reminded me of some form of slavery but I would wear another creature's hide to be fashionable. The hypocrisy stood out glaringly.

And that's what this book does: It makes you see other points of views in veganism: The sistah who became vegan for health, the one who wants to live in tune with the earth, those who follow Ma'at as their code of ethics and yes, the animal rights lover. It shows our commonalities and our differences. It is my hope that all vegans, vegetarians, political activists, earth lovers and spiritual people read this book so that these voices may be heard.

I am a new vegan and was super excited to read Sistah Vegan. I love the fact that the anthology offers different perspectives on veganism and the tone is non-judgemental. It definitely provided me with food for thought because I had never pondered animal rights or being a vegan as a political statement. This will be a book that I will read again and again for support along my new dietary lifestyle!

What an amazing book and read this book was for me. I waited anxiously for my copy to arrive and when it did it just made my day. I have really found a lot of information and support from this book. Reading about the experiences and thoughts of all these women is so crucial since African-American women are a rare face to be seen in the Vegan community. Hopefully, other women will feel inspired to read this book, and really take in its love and wisdom. You are not alone! Others share your concerns!

I also loved that in the end there was contact info for these women. I will definitely reach out to a few of them.

Blessings to A. Breeze Harper and her crucially needed book!

Refreshing, Outside of the Box Vegan Perspective! 30 juillet 2011
Par E. Wiggins - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I am a working class white female who went from omnivore to vegan overnight in February of this year. The transition to a vegan diet was very easy for me (I was quite health conscious before and also lactose intolerant and not a huge meat eater) and I have embraced it. Becoming more consciously aware of the materials I use and how it impacts the environment, Earth, laborers from around the world, non human animals, etc has been a little more challenging and it has taken time to replace all my animal derived clothes, shoes, toiletries, cleaning products, supplements, etc with fair trade less harmful materials that do not include the exploitation of animals and humans whevere possible. I am not rich by any means and I do not live in the most diverse community. What has been the most challenging for me however is to become more aware of and begin to question my own beliefs, values, convictions, daily actions and choices and what truly motivates me, as well as the system I live in. Being vegan is so much more than living without the use of animal products. It challenges one on every level of living and being.

In exploring different aspects of veganism (animal welfare, abolitionist approach, sexual politics, health, etc) I came across "Sistah Vegan" and I devoured this book! What a refreshing, eye opening, different perspective! The stories in Sistah Vegan are all unique, told with conviction and honesty and raw experience, not refined academic rhetoric coming from some privileged well respected guru. These are women walking the walk, telling it like it is, struggling against roadblocks so many of us in Western culture take for granted. They refuse to be ashamed of their sexuality, spirituality, culture, bodies, gentleness, reverence for life... I love what Tara Sophia Bahna-James shares in the chapter "Journey Toward Compassionate Choice" where she says "I owe it to others like me to stand up and declare that I exist". So many perspectives like this resonate with me. I am shy, introverted, poor, small, struggling with an emotional disorder and the world is not a nice place and you really have to be loud to be heard. Being vegan can be a marginalizing experience in a society laden with violence, apathy, self gratification, and materialism/consumerism but it also opens doors and minds and hearts and it strengthens ones commitment to live in line with ones values. These women provide living examples of just how they do this.
These women also challenge the world to see that veganism isnt just about animal rights, and that vegans aren't all stereotypical rich white skinny hippy types. It brings to the table an important aspect of food (and other material) consumption. It isnt just about personal health or survival or enjoyment/pleasure. It isnt about subscribing to a fad diet or one that is the "best" for health/environment etc. It isnt just about where our food comes from and how animals and laborers suffer for it. This book uncovers the just under the surface economic, political, cultural, racist, sexist, and ethical issues that represent and influence our food choices and resources. Food is indeed a weapon used for centuries to control groups of people and animals and used for greed, profit, self interest, hate, religious bias, power, etc. but also is a source of healing, cultural identity, life. Like it or not what we put into our mouth has a profound effect on not only our own health but the whole world. It represents our struggles and our identity as individuals and collective groups and what we value and where we came from but also what direction we are moving toward. "Sistah Vegan" illustrates this beautifully. I am only saddened that this book is not right out there on the shelves among "mainstream" vegan books like "Skinny Bitch" or "Animal Liberation". It's up to the readers of this book to spread this awesome message. I intend to make this book known wherever possible and to pass it on, perhaps donate it to a second hand store to help educate some other poor soul living in a still very oppresive culture with a lack of resources to make more informed choices. Maybe I will order a few more and spread them around to community centers as well! This books if very readable and approachable, unlike other vegan philosophical books that can be dry and academic. Thanks A. Breeze Harper for this important work!

Wonderful book! 20 mai 2010
Par Anazette Hudson - Publié sur
Format: Broché
No other book has really touched me on such a personal level as this anthology of stories from other Black-identified female vegans. I finally feel as if there are others out there whose experience mirrors mine. Some of the writings referenced in the book are on my to-do list for new books to read, especially Queen Afua's book on healing. I like the uniqueness of each contributor; I never felt as if I was reading the same story twice. I'm in the final chapter of the book and am sad that it's coming to a close. I really hope for a second volume to this book for I would definitely love to contribute a personal story.
